Resurrection Sunday! - April 5, 2015

Jesus Saves!

One of the highlights of the Christian calendar is the annual celebration of Resurrection Sunday -- the day that Christ rose from the dead!

Some churches celebrate with elaborate productions with casting, crew, lighting, drama, music, and sometimes live animals. I'm glad for those productions!

Some churches celebrate quietly by comparison. But the celebration is still vibrant. The message of Christ's resurrection from the dead is central to the whole message of Christianity.

1 Corinthians 15 (NKJV)

14And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.

17And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!

20But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.  

Christ is risen because His death, burial, and resurrection is the only sufficient payment for our sin and the only victory over sin and death! 

Oh, by the way, we gather every Sunday to celebrate the resurrection.
